So, you want to make a role playing game where the player can select their own character. Or you want to create a story where a witch turns the hero in to chicken? Well, then watch this video, because I’ll show you how easy it is to do this.
Hello everyone, I released some very cool new features! You can now customize the behavior of your characters.
You can let people walk around, fight along with you, talk to monsters, etc.
All this functionality is not yet added to the screenplays. So you cannot enable and disable behaviors in screenplays. But don’t worry, this is the next thing that I’m working on.
Some time ago, I gave a preview of making RPG’s on your mobile phone. But because it wasn’t finished, I only released playing games on mobile, not making.
But a lot of people kept asking me when the editing would be finished.
The problem is, for a full mobile version, I still need to implement text input, and a proper touch interface. Now we have scrollbars, but actually you want to swipe things. And also, the buttons might be too small for finger input. But the most important part is, there is no virtual keyboard.
Since that is still lot of work, I wanted to implement some other features first before I put effort into mobile.
But then on our Discord, one of our users called ‘RPG Maker’, suggest to just release it as is, without the text input. Since you can always go to the desktop version to finish text dialogues etc.
So yeah, why not? So I fixed a few issues that the mobile still had, like some dialogs that were too big for the screen.
So with this 0.45 release we now support basic editing. But as said before, for text input, you will need to switch to the desktop version.
So test it out on your mobile device by going to https://rpgplayground.com.
The latest version of RPG Playground is released, which includes:
- 55 new human characters
- Hero can become any character, including animals and monsters
- Fullscreen mode support
And if our YouTube channel reaches 350 subscribers, 5 extra characters are added!!! So make sure to subscribe now!
I just released a tiny update which includes a fullscreen button! Click the menu button and you will find it right under the “Restart Game” button.
This feature was requested many times since it’s easier to work on your level when you have a huge overview. I hope you like it! 🙂
Do you want a fullscreen option in RPG Playgound? Well, there is currently a hack that you can apply to achieve this, as explained in the video below. If you don’t like videos, follow the instructions below the video.
- Go and edit your game.
- Anywhere on the web page, right click and select ‘Inspect’ from the dropdown. This will open the browser developer tools.
- Select the ‘console’ tab inside this new panel
- Paste the following text in that console, and press enter:
- Your game is now in fullscreen mode, press the ‘ESC’ key to exit the fullscreen mode
Soon I will add a fullscreen mode inside RPG Playground again, but in the meantime you can use this hack.
That is all!
A large part of the world is now in lockdown due to the coronavirus. So how do you keep yourself busy during this time? Are you bored yet? No problem, RPG Playground has tons of games to play, and like, and comment on. Yeah, comments are now possible thanks to the latest release from last week.
Here is the top 100 list of of the best community games of all time. A secret algorithm selected these games, so don’t be mad at me for the ordering ;). Did I miss some? Do you want your game in this list? Then please comment below and I’ll add it.
Play, like and comment! The creators will love that.
I just released a huge change on the RPG Playground website. Games are now fully integrated into the website, which means you can search games, like them, comment on them, etc.
This functionality was started inside RPG Playground itself, with the lobby that lists the games. But I decided to move this to the website, since I can get some functionality (almost) for free, like comments, game have their own web page, following people, listing their games, a news feed, etc.
The work on this was mainly done by someone I hired, which also frees up my time to work on RPG Playground itself (so expect some cool updates soon :)).
Remark that I had to convert all project metadata (such as title and description) from the RPG Playground server to the website, so if you see anything that went wrong on one of your games, please let me know! I was surprised how many games there are in total: 15446!!! This includes both shared and private games. The shared games you will have to count for yourself on the website ;).
Next up is the mobile version, which is as good as finished. I wanted to roll out this release first before I do the mobile. But that will be cool because then you browse games on mobile, play them and give feedback. I’m really excited about this, and I hope you are too.
Have fun on the website!
The user login system of RPG Playground is totally reworked, and now the website login is used for everything.
Previously it was sometimes confusing that the website is using a different user login system than RPG Playground itself. That has changed now!
The real reason of this change is that we are working on extra community features. The website will become more important in sharing, commenting and playing games. You will be able to comment on games the same way as you can comment on blog posts.
The impact on your account
To access your projects, you need to have the same login email on the website as you had at RPG Playground. If this is an issue for you (maybe you don’t have access to an email account anymore), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can move your projects to a new email address.
I surely hope this doesn’t give too much panic and problems, but rest assured that all your projects are safe, and I can always give you access to them again if something goes wrong.
When you gave your first interview on RPG Playground, you were 11 years old. What has changed in your life since then?
Actually, i was 12, and what has changed is i was going through a phase where i thought i was just being ignored all the time and had massive paranoia, and it hasn’t really gone away yet if i’m being honest, but it’s gotten better
When you first started out with RPG Playground, you made a massive amount of new games. Are you currently still working on a game?
Yes, actually! Since my break from RPG Playground, a lot of new stuff has been added, and for 1 of my new games the code has gotten confusing, making buildings is still an issue for me but right now i’m working on 2 big games, they’re really good and long unlike my other games
So what did you learn from your first games that you can now apply in these 2 bigger games?
Tokens mainly, but also the teleport function. I’m ao way better at setting the plot now
Can you give a short introduction to your new games, to get people excited?
Runaway Bride – Play as Linda. You’re about to get married to your husband you’ve been dating for 6 years, Zach, but you can’t do it. Find out the hidden truth about him and discover his past in Runaway Bride
The Tale Of The Demon – Play as the infamous demon Swealop as you go on a quest with many easter eggs, main missions and side missions as you go on a quest to defeat your own corrupt overlord, Fire Bull
Do you share your games with people you know in real life? Or do you like to keep things for the online community only?
I have some friends in real life who know about RPGPlayground but for the post part, I like to keep what I do online for the people online, I’ll only tell some people in real life about my online personality if I really trust them and right now I sort of have some trust issues.
You seem like a creative person, what else do you create besides games?
Could that music be used in one of your games, or is the style or mood different?
I could certainly make styles of music for my games, but right now i don’t think the music would fit my games
So what do you miss the most in RPG Playground? What would you want me to improve first?
Improve, i don’t really know. But add, custom sprites like i said last interview
Alright, thanks for the interview Prodphage! And best of success with finishing your new games, I can’t wait to play them!
